Energy storage specialist scales-up at Chesterford Research Park
Energy storage technology pioneer Superdielectrics has expanded into new laboratory and write-up space within the Emmanuel Building at Chesterford Research Park.
Superdielectrics first moved to the park in February, taking a suite in the multi-occupancy Science Village building. Due to the accelerated development of its proprietary technology, the organisation needed to scale swiftly and the newly completed Emmanuel Building provided the opportunity.
The Emmanuel Building is the latest facility to undergo a complete refurbishment at Chesterford Research Park.
Completed in August, it provides 37,400 sq ft of fitted lab space divided into four self-contained laboratory and write-up area suites.
Deemed as ideal for organisations scaling up, the Emmanuel Building has seen unprecedented demand which will result in further new occupier announcements in the coming weeks.
Superdielectrics’ mission is to develop high energy density, low cost, low environmental impact electrical energy storage devices that will help create a clean and sustainable global energy and transportation system.
The company claims that its supercapacitors are not only safe, rapidly rechargeable and have a long life, but also contain no rare materials or conflict metals and have the added benefit of reducing pollution and waste with no end-of-life recycling issues.
Jim Heathcote, CEO, Superdielectrics said: “Over the past six months Superdielectrics has made great progress developing electricity storage technology for the clean and sustainable 21st century energy system.
“Our landlords and the Chesterford Research Park management team recognise the global importance of our work and have been extraordinarily supportive. Our expansion into the Emmanuel Building reflects the support we have received and our shared environmental values.”
Management is already visualising the next phase of development at Chesterford Research Park – a 60,000 sq ft multi-occupier building, fitted with a mix of laboratory and office space. Subject to planning, the facility will be ready for occupation by the end of 2023.
